You could wire it under the centre console with the cigerette adaptor on the end still... then connect a USB charger and Ipod cable. route it neatly under the dash so you have a charger! :)

thats what I would do if I removed the smokers pack.
Gone: 09' 120d MSport, catched at 198bhp, Miltek, K&N, CSL Reps, BMWP parts, coding, & more.
Now: 05' E46 318ci Cabrio, dark Bloo, many options, and mods will come in time.

I used it to power a 12v outlet in the trunk for the compressor in the mobility kit ;)

But you could use it for enything you like :) but its only powered when the ignition is on.

I'm the lucky one. Already have a 12v outlet in the boot and also a 12v outlet under the armrest. My parrot kit charges my iPhone which I also use for navigation so the 12v in the smoker pack is currently redundant. But I'm sure a use will present itself at some point ;-)
